37Mb uncompressed size, it makes me careful.

that was my first thought too: "37MB for an IRC-CLIENT?????? This must be a typo, right?".

Delete localization files you don't need and it will be a lot smaller!

Crashes a lot, and pieces of windows get "left behind" over the interface, like the chat text and then slowly scrolls out of view. Very bad.

This is 37mb for two reasons: a) it is a GTK app and includes the full GTK runtimes in the package, and B) it contains full localization for dozens of languages.

Removing the localizations and UPXing the GTK runtimes should bring this down to a fraction of its size.
